Question

# An electric dipole is placed in an electric field increasing at the rate of λ per unit distance along the x-axis. The dipole may undergo :rotational motion onlyrotational motion and translational motion along z-axisrotational motion and translational motion along x-axisonly translational motion along x-axis

A
rotational motion and translational motion along z-axis
B
rotational motion and translational motion along x-axis
C
only translational motion along x-axis
D
rotational motion only
Solution
Verified by Toppr

#### Here the electric field will produce torque and force on the dipole.The torque will give the rotational motion and force will give the translation motion of dipole along x axis.
